Almost three weeks ago, we had the pleasure to interview Henrix. For those who actually don’t know him, he is one of the United States biggest exponents in the electronic/dance music scene right now.
Between his most recent accomplishments, he gave away a remix, is going to release a brand new single, «Acid, Rave, Sex», and he’s also running an amazing contest with thrive music, in wich you can win a trip to Las Vegas and party with him(click here to participate).
In a few words, we’ve talked with Henrix about his future plans, new releases, his music taste and something more.
The interview is also available in spanish right here.
First of all let’s talk, about your releases, except for some, they’re usually punchy and with a lot of power. As you know, the underground scene is gaining a lot of popularity, creating even new subgenres (mixing the underground and the mainstream vibes) tropical or future house. It has influenced in your productions? Any future release of these genres?
Umm im not sure they recently influenced my sound, future house is pretty much house music from a decade ago revamped and I started with House music so I’ve been inspired by it for years! haha. As far as tropical house its not really my thing, I respect it but I’m not sure it influences my sound.
We know that you will release two brand new songs in May. Can you tell us something about them?
Yes im releasing Acid Rave Sex which is a song I did last year after WMC and its coming out on Thrive Music and I believe my collab with Digital Lab will be coming out on Kaskades new label Arkade as well.
Between last year and 2015, lots of electronic artists are dropping their respective LP’s. We cannot help but ask you if you’re going to do the same. Did you have in mind to release your own LP in the future?
I do have it in mind and its not something that i’ve necessarily started to be honest. I do have a few tracks that could fit in one but I haven’t really made that decision that im doing one. Im just waiting on the correct timing, everything I do is planned out and timing is everything is this industry.
Now we would like to know something a little more personal. What tracks do you always have on your playlists? What other genres and artists do you listen outside of electronic music?
I have all of Kanye Wests albums on my playlist, I have Porter Robinson, Madeons new one and M83 also a lot of old school Biggie & Tupac. I also have Pink Floyd which is my favorite band of all time. I’m very into music as a whole so im always listening to different genres .
Another thing we cannot ignore is the Winter Music Conference. Looks like there’s no one better than you who can tell us something about its evolution. ¿What do you like and what you don’t about the last few years? ¿What year would you choose so far?
I think its grown to more of a commercialized event which isn’t necessarily a bad thing. When people come to the festival to hear a commercial set a lot of times they end up in a different stage with a genre they never heard before and they love the sound you get me, thats the beauty of it. One thing I dont like is that since I live here i go hard for a whole week on the events while most DJs show up around Tuesday or Wednesday haha. I think my favorite years were around 2007-2010. It was more fun for me and not as much work. I wasn’t DJing at many events and I got to enjoy it as a fan and not an artist, not that experiencing it as an artist is a bad thing but its a different vibe.
You have played in clubs and festivals as Light Vegas, Space Miami, Tomorrowworld… ¿From wich you keep the best memory? ¿Any future date to highlight?
Hmm I think Tomorroworld was pretty big. Also I did 2 shows in Mexico that were absolutely insane! I have lots of shows in Vegas that im looking forward to! Im there once or twice a month and every show is always amazing.
Now we’re going to ask you some short questions about your own favorites. No explanation needed:
Dj: Eric Prydz
Producer: Madeon/Porter Robinson/M83
Track: Danny Howard – Bullet
Label: Dont have any particular one
Club: Light Vegas
To end the interview, we would like to know if you could tell us any funny/curious thing that happened to you on your Dj career.
In Mexico for Life In Color security had to get me off the DJ booth because fans got too crazy and started climbing over the guard rail!
